    The site does not fill me with any confidence. It seems to be aimed at authors, the design is rather unattractive, there is no real information about the people who are running it, and they seem to have no real focus (i.e. books on hypnosis and self-help mixed with a novel? Also, one of the hypnosis books has chapters on telephone (okay) and instant messenger (?) hypnosis).

    If you are considering them, I suggest caution.

    Some of those same things stood out to me as well. I'm guessing they are rather new to the game.

    They don't appear to have any distribution other than the normal channels of Ingram and probably Baker & Taylor. The books they have released don't have a listing in Bookscan, so it appears as though they have very little impact on the publishing or reading world. I noticed one of their books is a pdf, written by their editors. Not real sure what the attraction is for this company.

    Site is gone, as is their "affiliate" readreadbooks.com.

    An Smashwords profile survives, as does a blog.
